Your Regenerative Power

March 26, 2020

Dear Doctor

We find ourselves in a reflective space.  What critical changes must we all make to bring more harmony to our planet? And how do we protect ourselves from this viral pandemic?

With the news media creating more fear and anxiety, we forget what integrative medicine has known and practiced for decades.

Your body is a powerful regenerative machine.  Every one of your cells, the tissues that make up your body’s systems, is in a constant state of cellular death and renewal.  You regenerate trillions of cells to keep each of your body’s functional systems in good order.

A fine tuned body knows how to effectively handle and counteract viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.

We have learned that the best defense comes through eating a diversified and primarily plant based organic diet, drinking plenty of fluids, sleeping at least 7 hours, exercising, and taking supplements to boost every system in our body, including our immune system.

Do you know that Blueberries have the capacity to regenerate nerve tissues in the memory center of the brain and in the frontal cortex of our brain, the thinking center?

Do you know that probiotic organisms convert undigested soluble fibers (e.g., inulin, beta glucan, and pectin) into short chain fatty acids like butyric acid to energize the colon’s lining to healthily regenerate its cells?

Do you know that probiotic organisms loves plant polyphenols and break their molecular chains so the phenolic molecules can be absorbed into the systemic circulation and turn on the repair, renewal, and regenerative powers of our cells?

Food is indeed therapeutic and your body is a powerful machine that utilizes foods to regenerate and keep you healthy.

Let’s take a look at some of our Therapeutic Foods Supplements:

Phyto Power has Blueberries for our brains, Rose hip for our hearts, dandelions for our livers. A great source of polyphenols for probiotics to digest and help the colon to regenerate!  Combine the Phyto Power with the Original Synbiotic Formula for a diversified probiotic organism and fiber to help the probiotic regenerate even faster.

Dear Friends

Did you know that oat beta glucan has enjoyed a long history as a special fiber for heart health?

Oats Photo

The Beta Glucan Synbiotic is qualified for the American Heart Association “Healthy Heart” seal of approval.

From Sharper & Jones in 1959, to the Cornell China study in 1998, Andersson & Hellstrand in 2012, and the NIH report in 2015: oat beta glucan is found to lower LDL cholesterol and support a healthy heart function.

According to Andersson & Hellstrand (2012), oat β-glucan is not only known for its ability to lower LDL, but also for the general cardiovascular health-promoting properties – the micronutrients of oats, phytonutrients, that contribute to the protection of our hearts.

To strengthen the heart health properties, the Beta Glucan Synbiotic also contains red beetroot, shown in research as a rich source of dietary nitrate for heart and vascular health.

The gastrointestinal is central to a healthy functioning heart (Kassaian et al., 2017; Sáez-Lara et al., 2016), with many researchers positing the connection between heart and gut health (Serino et al., 2014; Huang et al., 2013).

The Beta Glucan is a comprehensive, multifunctional product – formulated to nourish the heart, open up circulation, and create a balanced microbiota in the gut.*

Dear Friends

Trivalent chromium (Cr) is an essential trace element in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and protein. In recent research, Farrokhian et al. (2019) found chromium to be effective for people who have diabetes and also suffer with coronary heart issues. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was done with 64 diabetic patients with heart issues and found that 200 μg chromium increased insulin sensitivity compared with placebo, as well as a significant reduction in C-reactive protein and an elevation in total antioxidant capacity. Chromium also reduced high blood pressure and had even a beneficial impact on weight.

This is very good news, so why add beetroot when chromium is doing so much on its own?

Beet Photo

Beetroot, especially with a high nitrate capacity is found to confer cardiovascular health (Beals et al., 2017). Beetroot has also shown to lower blood pressure as well as help with weight management (Jajja et al., 2014). And lastly, Beetroot with its betalain pigment is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory (Clifford et al., 2015).

In sports, Baily et al. in 2009 found an improved oxygen delivery to the muscles, which helps athlete gain endurance and strength. In 2019, Husmann et al. designed a study to find out if beetroot can reduce muscle fatigue, and found that high nitrate beetroot juice increased exercise ability with less pain.

Beetroot performs so well that we added high nitrate beetroot to our chromium, No 7 Systemic Booster, and of course to the Beta Glucan.

Dear Doctor

Let’s face it, we are not eating enough fiber. Recent published reviews continue to highlight the connection between eating enough fiber, especially from plants, to lower cholesterol and improve heart health.

Statins are prescribed to lower cholesterol, however, there are side-effects that are not tolerable.

Two review from the USA and the UK summarize our need to increase fiber, especially the kind that lowers cholesterol, like beta glucan.

In the USA, Dr. Ghada Soliman, an associate professor of Nutrition in the Department of Environmental, Occupational and Geospatial Health Sciences, concludes her review of the literature that higher intake of fiber can in fact lower the need for statins. Some people may need statins but in much lower dosage.

Here are other fiber functions in the article by Ghada A. Soliman:

Dietary fiber has several protective effects against chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel syndrome, diverticular disease, obesity, and colorectal cancer in the age-adjusted analysis [77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84]. For example, insoluble fiber binds to and adsorbs carcinogens, mutagens, and toxins, and therefore, prevents their harmful effects to the body, by preventing the toxins absorption and targeting them for elimination [83,85,86]. Other fiber properties include delayed colonic transit time, prolonged post-meal satiety and satiation, and induction of cholecystokinin satiety hormone [87,88]. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics position on fiber intake is to increase consumption of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and legumes, and that dietary fiber is associated with risk reduction of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and select cancer types [89].

In the UK, Dr Charlotte Elizabeth Evans, an associate professor in nutritional epidemiology and public health nutrition, speaks highly of high fiber intake and the positive association between fiber and health benefits such as cardio-vascular health (2019).

Dietary fibre and cardiovascular health: a review of current evidence and policy

Charlotte Elizabeth Louise Evans:

Dietary fibre comprises many different, mainly plant-based, compounds that are not fully digested in the human gut. Insoluble fibres include cellulose, hemi-celluloses and lignin and soluble fibres include pectins, β-glucan and hydro-colloids. In the UK, the daily recommended amount has increased to 30 g but only 13 % of men and 4 % of women meet this recommendation. Currently the mean intake for adults is 21 g for men and 17 g for women. There is a wealth of epidemiological evidence based on systematic reviews of trials and cohorts to support the higher fibre recommendation. This includes evidence of reductions in the risk for CVD (both heart disease and stroke) and lower risk of type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure, lower LDL-cholesterol, as well as some cancers. Beneficial effects of fibre operate via a diverse range of mechanisms throughout the digestive system including the mouth, stomach and small and large intestine; some of which are still not completely understood. The updated recommendation for fibre is a long way from a typical British diet and requires several daily portions of fruit and vegetables and wholegrain foods. Improving dietary fibre intakes will require a variety of actions and policies from stakeholders; however, there is currently more of a focus on reducing sugar than increasing fibre. In order to increase the number of adults meeting the fibre recommendation, social marketing and labeling of high-fibre foods are warranted as well as reformulation and wider availability of wholegrain versions of popular foods.

Transformation to healthy diets by 2050 will require substantial dietary shifts.  Global consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes will have to double, and consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar will have to be reduced by more than 50%. A diet rich in plant-based foods and with fewer animal source foods confers both improved health and environmental benefits.  (Walter Willett MD, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 2019)

Dear Doctor

According to Lambeau & McRorie (2017), only 5% of adults consume the recommended amount of fiber! And even worse, many fiber supplements do not actually provide the health benefit that is associated with dietary fiber.

Dietary fiber is shown in research to help with many functions in our body, such as bowel regularity, improving short-term glycemic control, and reducing cardiovascular disease including lowering LDL cholesterol. Beta-glucan has a special gel-forming fiber that significantly increase the viscosity of chyme in the small intestine, slowing down the absorption of glucose.  Chyme is a thin liquid composed of nutrients and digestive enzymes which is absorbed readily in the intestines. Other fibers that are non-viscous soluble fiber like inulin, wheat dextrin, guar gum along with insoluble fiber like wheat bran do not have this gel-forming ability.

But what about long term glycemic control in metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes? Short term (postprandial) glycemic control is very important for acute glycemic effects of fiber, but what about a more long-term effect of fiber? Multiple studies have shown that gel-forming fibers like psyllium or B-glucan show a reduction in fasting serum glucose, insulin, and Ab A1 C in patients with metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes (Lambeau & McRorie, 2017).

The increase in chyme viscosity by gel-forming dietary fiber also lowers elevated serum cholesterol by trapping and eliminating bile (McRorie & Fahey, 2015). Read Lambeau & McRorie (2017) for a detailed technical Review

How much fiber do you need? Institute of medicine recommends 25 grams for women, and 38 grams for men per day.

Order Now:  Beta Glucan Synbiotic has the American Heart Association Seal of Approval for healthy heart dietary fiber. 2 tablespoon a day is the suggested use.
